NTT Security Named to 2018 MSSP Alert Top 100 Managed Security Services Providers List

October 1, 2018

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named NTT Security to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2018 ( http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100 ). The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations of all sizes.

“We are thrilled to be named among the top ten managed security services providers by MSSP Alert,” said John Petrie, CEO Americas for NTT Security. “We’re committed to adding exceptional value to our customers’ operations and securing their digital transformation. We view this recognition as validation of our relentless focus on delivering exceptional consulting and managed services to clients around the globe, in collaboration with the entire NTT Group.”

Building and operating a true MSSP requires major financial, technical and business commitments. Fully 63 percent of top MSSPs surveyed maintain their own security operations centers (SOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. Another 24 percent depend on hybrid models in which some SOC services are outsourced, with the remaining 13 percent either formulating strategies or completely outsourcing their SOC services.

Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. The cybersecurity skills shortage has further heightened the need for world-class MSSPs. The global managed security services market is expected to skyrocket to $101 billion in the next nine years, advancing at an eye-popping 18% compound annual growth rate, according to Persistence Market Research.

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate NTT Security on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, NTT Security continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.”
